I really enjoy using our SmartBoard with the Nelson MathFocus curriculum. I use the pdf version which is available on their website and import it into Notebook. I then add internet links and Flash interactives to make the lesson come alive. This week the Grade 5 and 6 students explored a million. We listened to music (If I Had a Million Dollars by The Barenaked Ladies) and read How Big is a Million and How Much is a Million on Youtube. We figured out what we were doing 1 million seconds ago. One assignment was for students to share with the class what they would do with a million dollars. Here are the results!
